Puts you at ease

My most pleasant doctor patient experience. Doctor Balakumar is a great doctor with a great personality. She explains everything well and does a great job. Most doctors i have dealt with are snobby and act as if you are taking up their valuable time. Not Doctor Balakumar. She is a person you wish you could hang out with.

Excellent Rectal/Colon Specialist

Before seeing Dr. Balakumar, i had seen another specialist who was not able to help me. Dr. Balakumar was excellent and she spent time explaining my conditions and was able to treat me without surgery. I am completely satisfied with her bedside manner and thoroughness.

I have sat in this office and all I see and hear is wonderful things about the doctor and the staff. It is nothing like the doctors I have seen before. The atmosphere is just wonderful. I would recomend anyone to this doctor.
